Christmas appeal

This year Holy Family Primary School, in conjunction with St Vincent de Paul Indooroopilly/ St Lucia Conference is once again providing hampers for families in need this Christmas Season.

Each class will be allocated one or two families or individuals for whom they will purchase special Christmas food and non-food items as a Christmas gift. By having Holy Family School involved in the SVDP Christmas appeal, it allows students and the school community to connect on a personal level with SVDP clients in our local area, as well as raise awareness and funds to support the SVDP society’s good works. In addition, SVDP is looking for HF parish support in providing staple food items, which will be included in the weekly food hampers distributed to clients such as the ladies in Brigid House. Some suggestions: pasta sauce, hearty soups, tinned tuna, salmon, ham, tinned veg (corn, beans/ peas) tinned fruit, savoury crackers, sweet biscuits, salad dressing, teabags/coffee, chocolate drink powder and fruit juice. Donated food items can be placed at the base of the Christmas tree at the back of the church.

We thank you in advance for your support for those who wont be as lucky as us this Christmas and during the year.

16-12-18 – Waiting to be filled with Joy!!

Hi everyone, how has the waiting for Jesus been going? It’s the one thing that most of us struggle with. We’re good at doing, multi-tasking, achieving goals and staying busy but we don’t do waiting very well. Even when we wait we’re usually filling in time with technology or thinking about the next thing that we have to do. I hope that you have all attempted to at least slow down and to take the time to pray, or drop into Church or visit someone that is in need. In authentically waiting we don’t actually know what will happen tomorrow, this Christmas or for the rest of 2019. Just like Mary and Joseph, all they were told was you are going to bear a son. Joseph was told in a dream to take Mary as his wife and that Mary is with child, a son who will save all. Mary also heard from Gabriel that she had God’s favour and that she would have a son despite being a virgin. Joseph would have been scared to betroth himself to Mary knowing that she was pregnant. He would have been fearful of the scandal which this would have caused within his community. Mary’s reputation would also been tarnished. Mary though accepted the news and then responded positively from then on in faith. So waiting is really important because we take the time to face our fears. We have to sit in the darkness just as Mary and Joseph did. We have to trust and have hope that God will indeed accompany us on this journey. So friends let’s take the courage to wait on the Lord, face our fears and let the Spirit guide us to the place where Jesus wants us. https://engageworship.org/ideas/the-waiting-room-advent-video This week we focus on the gift of joy. Waiting for Jesus is indeed a joyous experience. Is our joy genuine and real? Is it truly Jesus that I long and yearn for? Or am I only interested in the presents I give and receive and looking at Christmas lights? Is my heart ready to express that Christ is my Saviour and the only one who can bring me true and everlasting joy, peace, hope and love into my life and the world around me? Do I believe that everyone needs to hear about Emmanuel or do I keep it to myself?

Let everything that lives and breathes shout with joy!! https://skitguys.com/videos/joy

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
